defense will signal whether it attends to use the not guilty by reason of insanity defendase. the state will have the clock starting on the 60 days it has on decide whether it will seek the death penalty. and that's not an easy decision and only would be that will be made in consuin consultation wi victims and families. and because it's an important decision for them, so it won't be made easily or lightly. but the state will have 60 days to make that decision. if it's determined that the defendant is not cooperating with his attorney, not at all assisting in his defense, he'll be held over for psychiatric examinations with examiners both from the prosecution side and defense side probably sent to the state hospital in pueblo for those examinations. and if he continues to be nonresponsive, he can be given as happened in the jared loughner case in arizona psychotropic drugs to try to restore him to sanity so he can be ruled able to help in his defenses. so all those things are down the line. this morning was just the initial proceeding in this entire case. just advising him, an advi

use. this is no different. florida has a lot of seniors obviously. the swing state messages are going to be interesting and a little bit diverse i'm sure. the message wars begin pretty much it seems like in earnest today. we're going to have dueling messages, one with obama in florida and mitt romney in the northeast. romney is going to get down to florida, make his case for the people down there. this is a very tight election. obviously every vote matters. with the seniors out there, they vote. they watch. they pay attention to all this. it's still a little bit early to see how these messages are going to resonate amongst that particular voting bloc, but it's early. and we'll see how they develop as this thing moves away. >> rachel, the obama campaign continuing to attack mitt romney on the issue of his tenure at bain capital and also, of course, that refusal to release more than two years of tax returns. here's what romney had to say about those tax returns in an interview yesterday with an nbc ohio affiliate wnywo. take a listen. >> we're providing two years of tax returns, the mos

got us into this mess in the first place. [ applause ] now, i've got to tell you, it would be one thing if they had this theory and we hadn't tried it before, but the truth is we tried it for almost a decade. and it didn't work. the track record of their vision resulted in turning surpluses into deficits. we ran two wars on a credit card. job growth was the most sluggish it had been in decades. the average wages and income of working families actually went down during this period and it culminated in this massive crisis. so i don't know about you, but in my life i found -- sometimes i do bone headed things, i make mistakes. what i find it when i try something that doesn't work, then i don't try it again. okay? [ applause ] >> you don't go back to doing something that didn't work. now, i've got a different idea. so for example, governor romney said he would extend the tax cuts for the wealthiest americans indefinitely. he says that until he puts a tax plan in place. but his tax plan is not just to keep all the bush tax cuts. as i said, he wants to put another $5 trillion, this esti

input after that point. we know romney has used the 1999 departure date to shield himself from claims that he was at the helm when that company allegedly drove companies into bankruptcy, laid off workers, outsourced jobs as well. we should note that one of the fact checkers that he mentioned put out a statement today saying a lot of these claims, citing with the romney camp. even if he wasn't at bain at the time of the outsource how much does all of this continue talk hurt his campaign? >> well, it certainly hurts the campaign and i will say one of those fact checkers is our checker here. you can see the romney campaign is lachg on to what these fact checkers have said and calling out the obama campaign for telling falsehoods. so far that doesn't seem to necessarily be working and certainly not enough in terms of what republicans want to see mitt romney put up, which is evidence of that he created jobs at bain and to really flush out what his record there was. but we can tell, i think, from this reaction that the romney campaign is take on some water around bain and you've seen this n

, governor romney using the term obama care. he does not refer to the law in massachusetts that he inspired which you have pointed out is on his official portrait as governor of massachusetts. he does not call that will romney care. he would actually prefer to call it nothing when you talk about it, but nevertheless, talk about the issue of unemployment in the african-american community. we played the first clip of the governor referring to the african-american community and if they're looking for a president who will work for them, he is this person. he was very obviously ginger when acknowledging the historic signatures of the first black president, but saying here i am. don't look at my race. look at my policies whatever they are that we've not seen that he somehow believes will make life better for blacks. >> and i think that if we look at his policy, then he failed to say how those policies would address the disproportionate amount of black unemployment, particularly when his policies say let us protect the wealthy, let us continue to give tax cuts. he will not even deal with

from china even, from europe where we're afraid that they'll pull us down with them. by coming forward now to say, give the middle income people of our country a tax cut, the president is saying to them, you will be able to have some money to spend. by the way, look at what that does for the middle class. it creates some certainty. the entrepreneurial class is not the only people who need certainty. they need certainty, of course, but who needs certainty more than anyone else? as i speak, it's the middle class because they've stopped spending. they've seen no response from congress to what is happening in europe and china and i believe that could cross the shore. the president is giving them an immediate sense of certainty and of remedy if the republicans would only come for that part of the tax cut where 100% of the congress is for, and that's the 250,000. you have great division when it comes to people who go above that because that gets to the upper middle class and even beyond. >> representative eleanor holmes norton, thank you so much for your time. >>> let me bring in our panel t

thinking about some of your first campaigns. i think about all the places i used to travel in illinois. the first race i ran as a state senator, michelle and i had to xerox or go to kinkos and copy our flyers. we didn't have a tv budget back then. we rode around in my car, and i filled it up with my gas and i'm the one who got lost if i took a wrong turn. what's amazing, though, when i think about it was how many people you'd meet from every walk of life all across illinois in big cities, small towns, up state, down state, quads, you name it. and you'd always hear similar stories from people about their parents, their grandparents, the struggles they had gone through and how they had been able to find a job that paid a living age and to look after their families and their kids had done a little better than they did. those stories would resonate with me and michelle because that was our story. that was our lives. and then when i came to iowa for the presidential campaign, first stop, cedar rapids, first stop.
